2015-09-20 13:30:32 @RyanWithZombies okay
2015-09-20 13:30:40 @RyanWithZombies the way this is going to work is you each get 1 question
2015-09-20 13:30:43 @RyanWithZombies publicly
2015-09-20 13:30:51 @RyanWithZombies but I also can refuse to answer
2015-09-20 13:31:04 @RyanWithZombies invisibility goes first
2015-09-20 13:31:06 +bew so no "whats the flag???"
2015-09-20 13:31:06 +bew :p
2015-09-20 13:31:28 @RyanWithZombies you can try to ask that
2015-09-20 13:31:30 @ColdHeat ok hi what is needed
2015-09-20 13:31:43 @RyanWithZombies ColdHeat: we're doing a hint q&a real quick
2015-09-20 13:31:50 @ColdHeat hello
2015-09-20 13:32:13 +invisibility gosh. pressure. okay. How can I be sure I am translating from the hex in the 1,2, and 3 files ebcdic correctly? it doesn't come out as readable characters for me.
2015-09-20 13:32:30 @RyanWithZombies The files are actually encrypted also
2015-09-20 13:32:41 @RyanWithZombies you have to use cryptanalysis to solve them
2015-09-20 13:32:45 +_aegis_ yeah I feel like "This is actually encrypted" means "not just ebcdic"
2015-09-20 13:32:47 +_aegis_ :P
2015-09-20 13:32:51 @RyanWithZombies okay, next question goes to _aegis_
2015-09-20 13:32:56 @RyanWithZombies :P
2015-09-20 13:33:10 +bew what is the crypto system used???
2015-09-20 13:33:11 +bew :p
2015-09-20 13:33:25 +noproto meme hints always welcome
2015-09-20 13:34:06 @RyanWithZombies _aegis_: tick tock
2015-09-20 13:34:10 @RyanWithZombies bew is on deck
2015-09-20 13:34:30 +bew what is the cypto system used???
2015-09-20 13:34:42 +_aegis_ I don't think you're getting a hint past "you have to use cryptanalysis to solve them" there
2015-09-20 13:34:54 +bew yeah
2015-09-20 13:34:57 @RyanWithZombies _aegis_: do you have a question?
2015-09-20 13:34:57 +bew its a try
2015-09-20 13:34:59 +bew :p
2015-09-20 13:35:00 @RyanWithZombies we're going in order!

2015-09-20 13:35:14 @crowell RyanWithZombies: you're mad with power
2015-09-20 13:35:23 @RyanWithZombies what's your question about punchout?
2015-09-20 13:35:30 @quend ok
2015-09-20 13:35:31 +_aegis_ you just chose system/360 for the file format, crypto used is much older?
2015-09-20 13:35:33 @quend whats a punchcard
2015-09-20 13:35:39 @quend did you use those in college
2015-09-20 13:35:43 @ColdHeat how many punches does it take to get to the flag for punchout?
2015-09-20 13:35:47 +_aegis_ because shannon was doing crypto in the 40s but des didn't show up until 70s
2015-09-20 13:35:52 @quend ColdHeat at least half
2015-09-20 13:35:57 @RyanWithZombies _aegis_: yes! at least 80 years older!
